New Weapons

I managed to put something on my pen. I miss crafting with beads and making accessories.

A Direct Hit to the Heart

To be honest, I didn't want to write this down my blog because I don't want bad vibes or emo things here. But then the purpose of this blog is memory storage. If I don't write this down, I might forget this. Not that I don't want to forget bad things that happened (I'd choose to have selective amnesia if I could) but I don't want to forget the lessons that came with them. Maybe in a few months or years I'll look back, read this and laugh at myself.

Got myself into heartbreaking things last week. But...

What's a direct hit to the heart when you've got friends to visit you in class and surprise you with your favorite milk tea?

What's a direct hit to the heart when you've got a friend who'll eat cake with you even if he has to travel half-across Metro Manila?

What's a direct hit to the heart when you've got friends to hug you like a stuffed toy?

What's a direct hit to the heart when you've got colleagues (who are like older brothers and fathers) to pray for you?

What's a direct hit to the heart when you've got family?

What's a direct hit to the heart when you can make jasmine Yakult at home? (Just steep some jasmine-flavored tea in boiling water, add some sugar, lots of ice and a bottle of Yakult. And maybe some milk if you want. It's totes awesome. Like sampaguita-flavored Yakult to be exact haha.)

I think it's obvious where I'm getting at. We always need to look at the brighter side of things. Focus more on the blessings, not the frustrations.

I went to Maginhawa Street three Fridays ago. Thanks to Sean for texting me that he was bored and wanted to go somewhere haha. We went to Alfakhr's where I had my favorite Keema Rice.

I love Alfahkr's Keema rice!

Sean and Ron

We also went to the new Moonleaf branch that same Friday. It's my first time going there because I've been too busy. Sadly, they no longer offer my favorite Peach Yakult and they ran out of Lychee so I just had Passionfruit Yakult instead.

Two Fridays ago (when classes were suspended), I went to KK with Sir Christian and Sir Rain and solved ES 12 problems for practice.

Coffee, ES 12 book, trusty sci-cal

Last Friday, I was invited to places. Be a faculty model at the Engineering Opening Week party at Tomas Morato. Aggre's Transformers block screening. In the end, I was just working and modeling buildings at the office. But Ron texted me and invited me to go to Maginhawa. I ditched everything and went there. I needed to hangout with my friends for my sanity.

Although Sean, Maia and Che (Ron and Maia's common friend) were really tipsy when I got to Delish.

Hi Sean
I told everyone that I wanted Moonleaf so we went there. I had Yogurt Milk Tea and it was good. Another favorite, yay!

Yes, no more seats in Moonleaf so we hanged out at the couches outside the toilet haha.

I want to go to Crazy Katsu next Friday. :)

Teacher on weekdays. Review student on weekends. Researcher in between. Baking and crocheting if there's still some time left. It's hard switching hats and balancing roles. When I get too focused on one, I tend to forget the other roles. But I hope I get the hang of this.
